Wow - I can't imagine 3 sets in 3 years. That is just crazy.

Let them sleep in the middle, Let them be little

Wow!

I want to know how they have only 20 diaper changes a day!: I only have two in diapers and I change more diapers than that daily. She has to have 4, if not 6, in diapers.

Gotta be one organized, or really laid back, mom. (or both!)

Me.  With 1 spouse, 4 kids, 16 chickens, 74 matchbox cars, 968,562+ legos, a dishwasher waiting to be emptied, a washing machine waiting to be filled and a lost cup of tea in the house.

really? you change that many diapers in a day?

my girls are 7mos and I change them once every 3 hrs during the day unless they have a BM then i change them right away......since they sleep all night i dont change them during the night...so they get about 4 diapers changes per day.....

20 dipes a day HAS to be wrong. My kids are 10 mos and we go through 160 dipes a week... We use cloth, though, so I know we might change more often than some people, but 20 a day would just be for her newborns I would guess. And that poor 10 year old girl... not getting enough sleep.

What an incredible story!

I'm sure they love the names (they're cute), but I was having problems keeping them straight! All "T" names for the youngest 7 kids. They're all very sweet.

Wow. I can hardly fathom the idea.

I wonder how many people stop having children after having twins once. Part of me would really like to have one more baby eventually, but the thought of having twins again is just so scary to me! My twins have been comparatively easy, but I know I'd end up with the really hard ones next time!

As a SAHD i have learned to read the packaging on the diapers..the box states good from 14-20 pounds so i leave em on even if they never hold more than three pounds. That way i only use a few a day....lol..just kidding ladies..no seriouisly i was kidding.

YES!! What is UP with this? Sposies, cloth, it doesn't matter. He leaks. I'm diligent about pointing his penis down, he leaks. Aargh! He pees like crazy and is a good sleeper, my couch is going to need to be replaced by the time potty learning comes around.

Not a directional issue..might be a volume issue..if it comes out all at once, no diaper can contain it as dipers need a few sec to start absorbing. Go for the ones with better let elastics..helped a bit for me...
